Matt Doody Three-peats at Brae Burn "B" with partner Drew Sawyer

Newton, MA

The coming of December, an appropriate light snowfall, and a full 32-team draw.  The latter, a first since 2002. And without question, the strongest quality field ever. A large Pioneer Valley (Western Massachusetts) contingent added to the regional character of the tournament. The common view was that any of a dozen teams could have won this event.

In the end, local Matt Doody of Weston Golf Club defended with an unprecedented third consecutive BB “B” championship, this time with fellow WGC partner Drew Sawyer, a repeat winner from 2007. They outlasted the Pioneer Valley team of John Hughes and Craig Waddington in a close and superb 3-setter, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.  The match ended at approximately 6 PM with possibly the event's largest spectator field ever still in attendance and highly enjoying the play and the beverages as provided by sponsor Mayflower Brewing Company.

Our thanks to a great team of hut commanders, Judy Helm, Nancy Walthall, Bruce Pierce and Johan du Randt.
